Karen Saunders, award-winning graphic designer and owner of MacGraphics Services, has just posted the latest in a series of free articles on her website.

Find the answers in Part 2 of this segment, entitled How To Make Your First Impression Last.

This article offers more tips for making your business card stand out. Marketing tips on a variety of topics can be found at

Business cards are something that a lot of people take for granted. Many of them don’t say enough about the business they represent, or worse yet, leave a bad impression altogether. According to Saunders, a thousand poorly designed cards aren’t worth ten carefully designed business cards. The ten will do more work and go farther if you incorporate the right techniques.

“The business card is where first impressions are created,” says Saunders. “You want your card to be the one that people keep, that they hand out to their friends, and that people recognize the next time they see it. And it’s not that hard to do.”

Saunders has picked up more than a few techniques for making a strong business card. The first part of this free article was posted on her website last month. And with even more business card tips in this second part, every business owner, whether they’ve been in business for 6 months or 16 years is bound to pick up some new ideas that they can run with. Business owners can find a library of past articles on her website, dealing with topics from designing your own logo to using the psychology of colors in your marketing materials.
